    ” plus support for dual band Wifi and the new faster 5Ghz Wifi standard” (sic)
    Hmmm, does “the new faster 5Ghz Wifi standard” mean without saying it, that .11ac is supported?
    Dual band .11n by itself is not necessarily faster in the 5GHz band than in 2.4GHz, but with concurrent operation it roughly doubles the throughput of single band mode.

    Isn’t that meant to be the S4Pro APQ8064 instead?
